Space Within group show

April 29 — June 3, 2017

Curated by Ibérina (Raquel) Vilhena

Opening Reception:
Saturday, April 29, 5pm — 7pm at Walnut Contemporary
201 Niagara Street (side lane entrance)
Toronto, ON, M5V 1C9

Artists in attendance

Walnut Contemporary is pleased to present Space Within, a group exhibition showcasing the work of gallery artists: Ella Morton, Gonzalo Bernard, Hyla Levy, Katie Bruce, Nava Waxman and Maia and guest artists: Heidi McKenzie and Teresa Ascenção

It is the Gallery’s third participation in the Open Exhibitions category of Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival.

“Space is the boundless three-dimensional extent in which objects and events have relative position and direction.”

Curator Ibérina Raquel Vilhena is presenting a very diverse group of artists while consolidating their work in the exploration of the very concept of space: geographical, conceptual, physical and abstract ... under a common medium of photography.

The theme of the show prompted the selected artists to delve deep into their most intimate spaces. Thanks to various interpretations, their personal universes, usually clouded in seclusion and utmost secrecy, are revealed and cherished. The very concept of awareness of space itself is registering intensely with the artists: it urges them to unveil and unlock its innermost meaning.


The Gallery
Established in late 2012 in Toronto’s King West Village, Walnut Contemporary is a space created to connect world issues and cross-cultural artistic viewpoints.

Since October 2014 Walnut Contemporary appointed director Ibérina Raquel Vilhena's mandate has been to build a bridge to cross the gap between local and international art and create a new identity for the gallery. Currently showing established and emerging artists from the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, the gallery emphasis is on uniting, celebrating, and making accessible these cross-cultural viewpoints.

“The conduit that Walnut Contemporary provides is one that celebrates the diversity of artistic viewpoints, like the diversity of our greater community and the world around us. It is our hope that we can strengthen the art community as well as the community at large through the art that we share. At Walnut Contemporary we like to think of ourselves as bridging worlds, breaking boundaries and achieving the impossible."
